About us

The Family Information Service directory is managed by the City of London Corporation. It is funded by City and Hackney Clinical Care Group and Tower Hamlets Clinical Care Group.

It brings together information about a wide range of local health and council services, community clubs, social groups, well-being activities and events. It also includes the City of London's Local Offer for children and young People with special education needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

The City of London and its partners do not endorse or recommend any services. Please refer to our disclaimer information.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Martin Luther King

The Education and Early Years Team is united in our belief that education is the pathway for all children to reach their potential and achieve their dreams and ambitions in life. As educators, we believe that all children have the right to their education, their identity and the right to be proud of their heritage, culture and who they are. Education affords the opportunity to listen, reflect and learn from each other.

At this time, we want to reassure all children from black and minority ethnic backgrounds that they will always be treated with dignity and respect. We will not be silent witnesses to any form of discrimination and harassment within our community.

‘In the end, we remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.’
